So what do you think? (And a giveaway!)
Okay... -big sigh-. I am feeling much more like myself now and I'm super excited to share my new project with you! If you haven't already, head on over to Fall Creek Fibers and poke around. Eventually this blog will find its way over to the FCF (Fall Creek Fibers) domain and when that happens I will be sure to let you know to update your bookmarks/feeds. The idea is to have everything 'theurchiness' packed into one convenient identity where you can shop, read, and learn about all things fiber! The tutorial link section is packed full of helpful tidbits (as well as some interesting places to get your blog fix) and at some point there will be a FCF tutorials section.
As for the shop. Well. I'm stoked about it. It will stock everything from SOAK (for your fiber, quilting, and delicates), gifts for knitters (we have some amazing partnerships in the works for things like knitters hand balm and notions/needle/drop spindle cases), and everything you could need for creating your own handspun. Drop spindle kits, dye kits, un-dyed roving, etc. Not to mention all of the handspun and hand dyed roving you've come to expect from theurchiness (and a new line of colorways in the earth tones you love). And I'm taking my hand to dyeing some sock yarns... Because you can never have too much indie dyed sock yarn.
The transition will be slow, and I can't imagine ever completely shutting down my etsy shop (because I do love it so), so for a while you'll still be able to find me as theurchiness. The idea is that by the end of 2010 the shop will be in full swing and I have lots of exciting things planned for the launch.
Starting with... A giveaway (or three)!
Yep, that's right. I'm giving away a spot in my fiber club! One lucky reader (open to everyone, even international!) will be shipped an exclusive fiber club colorway for the months of June, July, and August. All you have to do is visit Fall Creek Fibers and leave a comment on this post telling me what else you'd like to see there (products you'd buy, resources you could use, tutorial ideas, etc). If you're already a fiber club member, not to fret! You can still enter the giveaway and get a double dose of fiber or use this winning to renew your membership when your three months are up. This giveaway will go on for three weeks, comments will close on May 22, and I'll announce the winner (via random.org) on Monday, May 24.
For those of you who wouldn't know what to do with roving if it bit you, we have a non-fiber related giveaway scheduled for Wednesday, May 5, so do check back then!
And on Tuesday there will be a (theurchiness) (this is going to get confusing) shop update at 11:00a PST.
And on Friday, May 14 there will be another non-fiber related giveaway.
It's a busy and exciting time for us all!
Thank you to everyone for your love and support, I couldn't do this without you! Now get commenting for the fiber club spot!
